When Andy Malitz began talking to Crain’s Cleveland Business nearly a year ago, Crain’s Akron Business was just getting started. In a way, so was Malitz, who serves in a dual role as executive director of the NEOMED Education and Wellness (NEW) Center and general manager of Sequoia Wellness—major additions to the NEOMED campus a couple of years ago. It didn’t take long for Crain’s executives to decide to move the Crain’s Health Care Forum (formerly held in Cleveland) to Rootstown. Located within a 50-mile radius of Northeast Ohio’s health care sector of major hospital systems, pharmacies, universities and biomedical companies, the NEW Center presents an opportunity for Crain’s to not only engage Greater Akron and surrounding communities with its health care forum, but also to ask a question that many have been pondering for some time: What does population health mean for health care and Northeast Ohio?
“Our conference and event services are top notch and are the direct result of collaboration and public-private partnerships that made it all possible,” noted Malitz. “But our education and wellness services are equally amazing, since they exhibit the benefits to a community when there is integration of the health care professions and an emphasis on treating the whole person. This is a case study for population health.”
